Yeah, the summer may be winding down, but there’s no need to cry about it. There’s still a lot of great live music to be had, particularly in the form of Riot Fest Toronto on September 6th and 7th at Downsview Park.

Psst, there’s no crying at Riot Fest BTW, so put on your big boy (or girl) pants and enter our contest for a pair of general admission passes. All you need to do is submit a comment with the band you’re most looking forward to seeing.

While it’s already been a banner year for festivals around town, Riot Fest’s lineup has the potential to blow them all out of Lake Ontario – 50+ artists will punk it up across multiple stages, including Social Distortion, The Flaming Lips, The National, Rise Against, Metric, Billy Talent, City and Colour and The Cure.

If this isn’t a kick-ass way to spend the weekend after Labour Day while giving summer the middle finger, I’m not sure what is.

Tickets are also available here, although you had better hurry before the price goes up one last time!
